Separated at Birth: Pumas captain Felipe Contepomi and Die Hard star Bruce Willis
Argentina were never going to win this morning’s 2011 Rugby World Cup group game after Felipe Contepomi went off. The fly-half departed injured midway through the first half against England in Dunedin having already put Argentina on their way to a shock lead that they held for much of the 80 minutes before being pickpocketed by Ben Youngs.
But, as the captain departed, Argentina lost their John McClane, their talisman and seasoned veteran of four World Cups. Funnily enough, the Stade Francais man (you can see where this is going can’t you) actually bears a passing resemblance to Die Hard star Bruce Willis, a man who has more lives than even your luckiest moggy.
Luckily for England, Felipe’s similarities with big Bruce end there and the South American didn’t hang around long enough to undertake any English vengeance.
